Acts & the Early Church3.0 credit hours
 
The expansion of the church from Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria to the ends of the Roman world will be examined primarily in conjunction with the history of the early church portrayed in the book of Acts, but also from historical data gleaned in the epistles of the New Testament. The dynamics of growth of the N.T. church will be considered in conjunction with the geographical, cultural, and theological hurdles that had to be overcome in order to fulfi ll the command of Christ to make disciples of all nations.
